    Wow! Beautifully written! What a nice tribute to a wonderful man and my friend, thank you! Reading it, I felt like I was reliving that sad day again.

    Thank you Peter. It is a beautiful write-up of that day, even if it is a hard day to remember.

    Thanks, Marty. Just to clarify, this is not a news article or obituary. It is a column. I personally chose to leave the name out to drive home the universality of the experience, and to respect the family's privacy. Anyone who knew the deceased would realize who it is. I mentioned Mr. Patterson partially out of contrast, as he was a much more public figure. I hope this clears things up.

    Since the author took the time to write this detailed article, why did he not identify the deceased. The only individual mentioned is Mr. Patterson, who passed away several years ago who obviously is not the subject of the piece. something missing here.
